02.00 pm | Sustainable modernization of applications
The management and modernization of information systems requires the consideration of various aspects. These often overlap and require some management that can be supported by EA. Among these aspects is eco-design, which consists of developing useful, economical, sustainable, and scalable solutions. In this sense, this presentation focuses on the guiding principles for modernizing the information system in ecodesign mode.
02.30 pm | Business and IT in Concert: Business IT Alignment at Hermes Germany
Orchestrating business and IT harmonized is one of the key success factors for companies to strive in challenging times. Although Business IT Alignment is long discussed in theory and practice, success stories seem to be rare as different cultures and mind sets are hard to intertwine. At Hermes Germany, we tested different approaches and methods to improve our Business IT Alignment. In this talk, we want to give insights in our actions and show how the combination of EAM tool LeanIX and business process management tool Signavio supported us to find the adequate rhythm.
03.30 pm | Achieving “project to product” transformations through better collaboration of Digital Product Managers and EAs
This session will highlight interactions and activities needed for Digital Product Managers and Enterprise architects to work together to achieve a “project to product” transformation.
For enterprises seeking to deliver value through digital products, the transformation to product-centric management, is an important organizational and operational change. Close cooperation between Digital Product Managers and Enterprise Architects can define the optimal approach and support delivery of effective product centricity at scale.
Working together they define the optimum roadmap for new organizational structures, ways of working, and IT financial management models, as well as new frameworks for team interaction and accountability.
This presentation summarizes key points on how Enterprise Architects, Digital Product Managers and practitioners can develop ways of working together using the Service Now platform, and by leveraging The Open Group standards including TOGAF®, the IT4IT™ Reference Architecture, O-AA™.
02.00 pm | Welcome to Sales! Getting your message across and selling EA to stakeholders
You are leading a transformation which will benefit the business and you understand what needs to be done – but how do you get the necessary traction and overcome push-backs?
Sell it! That’s right – you’ve just landed in sales. In this session long-time CRO Tamara will guide you: How you can approach engaging your stakeholders, overcome their objections, and get them to ‘buy’ in to the solution you need to implement with their help.
02.30 pm | IT Services Off the Rack! Future vision or pipe dream?
Nowadays, standard software is chosen for the handling of most business processes and no more individual software is programmed.
However, the processes for the selection and implementation etc. are still roughly the same. The consequences are dramatic in terms of effort, cost, and time. Why is that? In his presentation, Mathias Hess explains the causes of this behavior and shows ways of overcoming it.
03.30 pm | Escape from the brownfield Swamp – Digital Transformation Strategy to enable Flexibility and Speed
Historically, IT departments were often seen as cost-centers, not uncommonly reporting to the CFO. As a consequence, the primary focus and culture of IT departments revolved around cost and efficiency increases. With the Digital Transformation, the role of IT has expanded to digitally transforming existing business models or even creating new ones. This drives the need for flexibility and speed.
Microservices, DevOps and the Cloud are commonly accepted enablers in this context, but most Architects, CIOs or IT Mangers do not share the privilege of launching on a green field. The real challenge relies on transforming the existing legacy landscapes full of tech debt, unintentional easter eggs and intertwined interfaces.
Thanks to tight coupling, it feels like playing Jenga. You touch one brick and are pretty lucky if you do not wreck the whole complex.
How do you find the ideal split between:
- state-of-the-art architectural patterns and stable monolithic architectures
- paying back tech debt and creating new business value
- reducing costs and increasing the speed of value creation
- precise estimation and experimentation
- separation of concerns and cross-functionality
- enterprise architecture governance and team autonomy
- upskilling and recruiting new talent
We offer our strategy to master the complexity of a brownfield approach, making software engineering a cutting-edge capability of our organization.
